    Ok, my interest is peaked here, what states allow active duty military to carry concealed without a permit. I'm curious is all.

    This scenario isn’t all that new for the military and the outcome may well depend on the relationship between the city attorney and the local military facility. If the guy is lucky, the JAG and the post Sergeant Major will handle it, even if it goes to the local criminal court. In any case, the soldier’s record will go far to save his tail with a suspended sentence, or just the opposite. At the very least, he will likely forfeit a months pay, pay the local fine, submit to counseling, probation, and be officially reprimanded.

    Without combing through all the states' general statutes, I know that many, if not all, include a provision that exempts active duty military if they are carrying in accordance with their orders.... (Even New York's Sullivan law has this exemption)

    Now regular units rarely issue orders to the troops requiring them to be armed, but that are plenty of more "specialized" units whose members ALWAYS go armed.

    I know Georgia (as mentioned by previous posts) allows active military to carry and I thought there were a few others, but I am not certain of this.

    True, but from how the article reads I don't see justification for a Dishonorable Discharge. It's been to long since I retired, I don't remember if a person can be stripped of VA benefits with a BC discharge or if it take DD discharge to strip all rights and benefits.

    It sounds like a gun and alcohol don't mix. It also sounds like the sergeant was trying to impress his girl friend. He must have had a complete lapse of common sense. I bet the army will stick it to this guy.

    Man oh man, talk about stupid. I've always had the policy of carrying either a gun or a container of alcohol, but never both. They just don't mix.
